Things that annoy others on the web

I read once that using excessive emoticons really bugs people. I am so guilty of it. But honestly- you can't hear someone's tone or catch a joke as quickly on the internet. Emoticons just really convey the emotion.

That's my deep thought for the day...

Go figure

Some people are harder to get a hold of than the Pope. Remember how you asked me that super important question with such urgency? How am I supposed to tell you the answer if you are completely inaccessible?!? It gets ridiculous. I can only call and email you and your assistant so many times before I just give up. You know where I sit. Come find me.

I'm dumb....

I over-served myself last night... that was bad idea #1. I don't know why I do this to myself... it's a wonder I can function at all today and honestly, I feel fine now. So I'm sitting on my back porch with a friend and a bucket full of booze and we're having a good time when she reminds me that it's a "school night" and she needs to go home and go to bed. WHAT? Why? I don't know why I insist on going balls to the wall after a few cocktails. She leaves. The smart and logical next step would be to join my husband and go to sleep like the rest of the world. Like a grown up. But no... I start calling people. Bad idea #2. "Hey Little Brother. Enjoying your summer? What are you up to? Yes..... I have been drinking. Am I on speaker phone?" Had enough? Oh no- "Hi, Mom! Just calling to say HI!" We talk for about 40 minutes. Time for bed? Nope! Because I know that I will want to sleep as long as I can in the morning I decide to take a quick shower. And shave. It seemed like a good idea at the time! After I dropped my razor 8 times I realized- that was a bad idea too.

Pamela the Non-Blogger has a blog!

Can anyone hear me? (I thought about doing that "Testing... 1...2...3..." but I figured that's been done before. Many times.)

So I don't know what I'm doing here. Bare with me! I'll get the hang of it. You'll see.
Coming up with a name was a bit difficult for me. I read all the tips. Who is your audience? What is the overall mood of your blog? I have no idea and that's ok. I figured I can use this kind of as my on-line journal. Sort of like Doogie Howser meets Carrie Bradshaw. Except without all the geniusness. And minus the string of boyfriends. This is going to be interesting. At least for me.
